10 Apr – Several days after it was reported that Joel Chan and Florinda Ho have broken up, it was reported that the TVB actor is desperately trying to salvage his relationship with the casino heiress, who is currently vacationing in England.
Asianpopnews reported that the media was still unable to contact both parties regarding their rumoured breakup.
Earlier, reports claimed that problems started to arise between the couple after setting up a fashion business together. It was reported that although the business is co-owned by the couple, all the capital was pumped in by Florinda while Joel was surrounded by massive debts.
Sources claimed that Joel allegedly asked a separation fee of over HKD 10 million from Florinda to pay off his debts, causing the heiress to drive him out from her mansion.
Meanwhile, other sources said that Joel is also actively negotiating his return to TVB to revive his acting career, which is a welcome news for producer Lee Tim Shing, who stated that there would definitely be a new drama role for him if he returns to TVB.
